As we prepare the assignment this week it is important to understand the importance of other means of collecting and delivering the report results. Please review the video and links at the Malaria Consortium website and the BetterEvaluation website. How can you best incorporate media into your evaluation from start to finish? Do you see if more useful in qualitative vs quantitative pursuits? Does it help explain and support your process and findings? How so? Choose several points in your evaluation process. How would you incorporate media into them to improve the process? How would you use Adobe Creative Cloud apps or other options to produce that result? Did you consider the stakeholder and their knowledge base? Delivery method availability? What other considerations did you take into account to decide which means of media you would us to supplement your data collection, dissemination, reporting, etc.? Does it meet Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 compliance requirements? Do the examples provided? What other problems do you see with the above examples you should avoid?

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevenation (CDC) (2015), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that causes deficits in social communication/language, social interaction and skills, and behavioral challenges. The Diagnostic Statistic Manual-5 (DSM-5) provides criteria for ASD with specific deficits and actions in three categories: communication, restricted ideas and repetitive behaviors, and social interaction (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The symptoms must be present in early childhood, which is eight years old or younger, and the symptoms together have to restrict and impair every day functioning for a child to be diagnosed with ASD (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). It is a spectrum disorder because there is a wide range of skills and different symptoms an individual with ASD can have (NIH: Autism Spectrum Disorder, 2015). The severity of the disorder also varies, so some individuals need more services than others, and different levels of treatment are used in the interventions based upon the individual (NIH: Autism Spectrum Disorder, 2015.) There are many different interventions and teaching procedures used to aid a child to learn and to progress developmentally. Incidental teaching is a method in which the child and adult interact in a natural environment that is not structured, such as free play, where the adult will teach a skill based on the child’s interests (Hart & Risley, 1975). It is a method in which children learn labeling and language in a naturally occurring setting (Hart &Risley, 1975). Incidental teaching is child-selected since the child initiates the interaction based on a request for help from the adult (Hart & Risley, 1975). The request can be either verbal or non verbal, and if the adult chooses so, he/she can partake in incidental teaching and decide the cue and what language behavior the goal is to be obtained, and the steps if the child responds to the cue, or if the child does not respond to it (Hart & Risley, 1975). Incidental teaching is a>
